Amit Shah - Jan. 4, 2011, 11:43 a.m.
The current default of 16 buffers for the control vq is too small for
the default max_nr_ports of 32.  We can get more entries in there,
example when asking the guest to add max. allowed ports.

Default to using the minimum required (next power of 2) of the
max_nr_ports in use.
